    Billy Dee Williams Of 'Star Wars' Describes Himself As Gender Fluid

    by Hayley Miller

    Billy Dee Williams, the actor best known for his role as Lando Calrissian in the 1980s "Star Wars" films, revealed he identifies as gender fluid during a recent interview with Esquire magazine.

    Williams, 82, described his legacy as a “colorful character who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously.”

    “I never tried to be anything except myself,” Williams told Esquire in an interview that published Tuesday.

    And you see I say ‘himself’ and ‘herself,’ because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine,” he added. “I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself.”

    Williams reprised his iconic role as the smuggler turned Cloud City administrator in the upcoming installment of the space fantasy series, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” which is slated to hit theaters on Dec. 20.

    In his interview with Williams, Esquire’s Matt Miller pointed out how Donald Glover, the actor who played a young Calrissian in last year’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” described the character as pansexual. Pansexuality typically refers to an attraction to people that is not limited by a particular gender identity or sexual orientation.

    “Yeah, he’s coming on to everybody,” Glover said of Calrissian during an interview last year with SiriusXM after “Solo” writers confirmed the character’s pansexuality.

    He continued: “I feel like if you’re in space it’s kind of like, the door is open! It’s like, no, only guys or girls. No, it’s anything. This thing is literally a blob. Are you a man or a woman? Like, who cares? Have good time out here.”

    Williams was reportedly thrilled to hear about Glover’s remarks.

    “Really? That kid is brilliant,” he told Esquire.

    J.J. Abrams, who directed “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” praised Williams’ performance in an email to the magazine.

    “Lando was always written as a complex, contradictory, nuanced character,” he wrote. “And Billy Dee played him to suave perfection.”

    Now does this mean that he dresses as a woman? I don’t know what the “fluid” means.

    Billy Dee Williams Says He Is Not Gender Fluid After Revealing He Feels Feminine and Masculine

    Billy Dee Williams Says He Is Not Gender Fluid After Revealing He Feels Feminine and Masculine
    The Star Wars actor, 82, clarified comments he made to Esquire in which he said he sees himself “as feminine as well as masculine.”

    His remarks were reported as Williams identifying as gender fluid, but he revealed to The Undefeated, in an interview published on Wednesday, that he had no clue what the term meant.

    “Well, first of all, I asked last night. I said, ‘What the hell is gender fluid?’ That’s a whole new term,” Williams said. As for his comments to Esquire, he said he was misunderstood.

    “But what I was talking about was about men getting in touch with the softer side of themselves,” the actor said. “There’s a phrase that was coined by Carl G. Jung, who was a psychiatrist, who was a contemporary of Sigmund Freud, and they had a splitting of the ways because they had different ideas about the… what do you call it? Consciousness. Unconscious. It’s a collective consciousness.”

    Williams continued, “But he coined a phrase that’s ‘Anima animus.’ And anima means that is the female counterpart of the male self and the animus is the male counterpart of the female.”

    “So that’s what I was referring to,” he added. “I was talking about men getting in touch with the female side of themselves. I wasn’t talking about sex, I wasn’t talking about gay or straight. I’m not gay — by any stretch of the imagination. Not that I have anything against gay people. But personally? Not gay.”

    Sexual orientation is not the same as gender fluidity. The latter refers to people who do not identify as having a fixed gender and sometimes preferring pronouns such as “they” instead of “he” or “she.”

    In late November, Williams told Esquire he “never tried to be anything except myself.”

    “I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously,” he said. “And you see I say ‘himself’ and ‘herself,’ because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine. I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself.”

    Later this month, Williams will return as Lando in the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker for the first time since Return of the Jedi in 1983.

    The Rise of Skywalker is in theaters Dec. 20.
